Ms. Macy Jernigan

Hey, Pioneers!

My name is Macy Jernigan! I am a 7th grade science teacher here at Innovation Academy. After graduating from South Johnston High School IDEAL Academy in 2016, I continued my education at the University of Mount Olive where I earned my B.S. in Agriculture education. (Fun Fact: I met my fiancé during my first class, freshman year at Mt. Olive!) I utilize my knowledge of agriculture and love for science to create unique learning experiences for students. Hands-on, minds-on learning is what drives my curriculum and teaching philosophy. My classroom runs on engagement, positivity, and a little bit of chaos. I believe in the power of music and it is constantly being played in my classroom. Besides teaching I also love cooking, working out, traveling, and shopping!
